Sydney punk trio Bloods and Laura Jane Grace have shared their new collaborative single “I Like You“. The track, which is accompanied by a music video, is the latest song to be lifted from Bloods’ new album, Together, Baby! out September 23 via Share it Music. Proceeds from the album will go to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (Australia).
On “I Like You” Bloods’ MC says, “Lyrically the song is about the giddy excitement you feel when you spark a new connection and you feel seen by another person who ‘gets you’ – as much a friendship as a romantic connection. There is a level of comfort that comes with feeling understood and understanding another person – warts and all. It makes you feel accompanied through life and like you’re never sleeping alone anymore, because they’re out there.
I knew I wanted it to be a duet and our friend and label owner Cayle decided to be bold and dream big and asked Laura Jane Grace if she’d be interested in being involved. Laura is an ICON, so it goes without saying we lost our minds when she got back to us and said she liked the song and wanted to sing on it. Laura’s voice is so immediate and perfect, it has taken the song to a whole new level. It’s a total honour and dream to have Laura involved.”
